Curacao is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan coast. The Country of Curacao, which includes the main island plus the small, uninhabited island of Klein Curacao ("Little Curacao"), is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Its capital is Willemstad.

Curacao is the largest and most populous of the three ABC islands (for Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao) of the Lesser Antilles, specifically the Leeward Antilles. It has a land area of 444 square kilometres (171 square miles). As of 1 January 2009, it had a population of 141,766.

Prior to 10 October 2010, when the Antilles was dissolved, Curacao was administered as the Island Territory of Curacao, one of five island territories of the former Netherlands Antilles.

Holding structures are one of the oldest and best-known planning opportunities offered by the Antilles. Many international holding structures today feature an Antilles company as a parent or substantial shareholder, typically holding shares in an underlying Dutch BV company (the "Dutch Sandwich"), or a member of a Dutch Cooperative. The advantages of this structure have made the Antilles one of the most important jurisdictions for structuring the receipt of worldwide dividends.

Our Antilles office was opened in May 1999.
